Snow Fox

October 19, 2010

Click images to enlarge.

Two versions of the snow fox printed (or attempted to print) moku hanga—moku” Japanese word for wood, and “hanga”means print. Together: wood print—specifically woodblock printmaking utilizing traditional Japanese methods and materials (rice paste and water-based pigments).

I’m printing this for the Concord Art Association (they want it for their holiday card—a huge honor),  but I was unhappy with all my traditional prints so I’ve decided to cheat and print each color separately, scan and compile.

The print on the left uses the key block or black outline printed last covering image entirely. The print on the right puts the blue block over the black key block. Not sure which I prefer.

    I personally like the one on the right…Less complicated looking. Just my 2 cents’ worth! : )
